Okay, this might not be the most exciting post, but I have been organizing my office lately (among other areas of the house) and I thought I would post a few pictures of the progress.
The cute little "suitcase" acts like a recharging station for my phone and PDA. I picked it up at a secondhand store for a few dollars.
I found these shallow wooden trays at Value Village for 99¢ each. I added some wooden dividers to the one on the right to hold my bobbins.
On the top shelf are some Snapware containers I got from Wal-Mart to hold all of my greeting cards. I love them!
On the same visit, I found plastic cups that fit perfectly. The whole unit spins around.
I got it when a store was going out of business.
I've had fun collecting various jars from secondhand stores to house various items. The one with the metal lid is fun. When you pull up on the lid, the pens come up with it. I think it usually holds straws. Only $4!
The spice racks were from a secondhand store and sprayed black.
I finally broke done and bought spice jars at Bed, Bath, and Beyond, only to finally find the plastic ones that I had in storage a few days later. Now that I'm organized, that won't happen again...hopefully!
One of the cupboards above the sewing area. The drawer units are handy for holding all sorts of stuff. The boxes I covered myself with secondhand wallpaper. I added ribbon trim around the top and bookplates to label each box. These boxes actually have cardboard inserts that divide each box into six sections. It makes it really handy for extension cords and other cables.
I ended up covering 19 boxes altogether. They cost me about $1.25 each to make.
I know, these jars are clear and you can easily see what's inside them, but I thought the tags added to the look!

I love having a place for everything!
